Developers reportedly familiar with Project Morpheus, Sony’s recently-announced virtual reality (VR) headset prototype for the PlayStation 4, have said that the devices offers superior ‘fidelity’ and ‘experience’ over the Oculus Rift VR headset. That is according to GTTV host Geoff Keighley, who tweeted the news during Sony’s reveal event at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) yesterday.
“Developers who have used Project Morpheus tell me the fidelity of the image and experience is superior to Oculus Rift,” Keighley wrote.
The host didn’t mention any specific names or if these developers were comparing Project Morpheus to the earlier developer version of the Oculus Rift or the Crystal Cove prototype revealed earlier this year. Sony announced a long list of developers and partners that were working on Project Morpheus yesterday.
Project Morpheus was revealed to feature a 1080p display at yesterday’s event, with a 90+ degree field of view (FOV). Today Oculus Rift makers Oculus VR get a chance to shout back with their own GDC presentation teasing the future of the hardware. VRFocus will be on hand to report on all the latest from the event.
